(AGI) London, Nov 28 - Football manager Roberto Mancini wantsto bring Robin Van Persie to Inter Milan after unsuccessfullytrying to sign him when he was manager of Manchester City. TheDaily Telegraph said the deal could happen at the end of theseason when the 31-year-old Dutch striker will have one yearleft on his contract with Manchester United. If the player wereto stay with the Red Devils, he would collect a 10 millionpound bonus agreed two years ago, when he left Arsenal for OldTrafford, but a Nerazzurri adventure could tempt him. This isalso because United are unsure about extending his contract dueto his recurring physical problems and a below par performancethis season with only three league goals. It appears Manciniwould welcome him with open arms as he believes that theDutchman could still make a difference in a less intense leaguelike Serie A. It would also be a low-cost deal, with Intersigning the player for around 12.5 million euros. Mancini isreported to have often brooded over his failure to sign VanPersie at City. In his first season with United he scored 26goals, helping the Reds to take the title at the expense oflocal rivals. However, the Nerazzurri could make a move inJanuary for Galatasaray midfielder Selcuk Inan, who Mancinicoached in Turkey. The Turkish club's elimination from theChampions League and Europa League could force them to cash-inin January and Inan is the main suspect. However, there couldbe competition from Everton and Leicester. (AGI).
